Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, July 1, 2015

On the first day of July, Mike Hauschild dazzled in El Paso and the GCL Astros got off the schneid.

Fresno 5, El Paso 1

W- Mike Hauschild (2-1, 7-2 season)
L- Chris Smith (1-3)

Fresno home runs: Matt Duffy (9, 2-run in 8th)

The Grizz got a fantastic outing from Mike Hauschild as he and 3 relievers combined on a 4-hitter.

Hauschild went 6 innings and allowed an unearned run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out a career-high tying 10. It's the 2nd time that he's struck out 10 in a start; he struck out 10 against Clinton on June 30, 2013, when he was with Quad Cities. Jordan Jankowski, Kevin Chapman, and Jason Stoffel each pitched a scoreless inning to bring it home. Jankowski struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 7th. Chapman allowed a hit and a walk, but struck out the side in the 8th, and Stoffel worked around a walk in the 9th to finish it off.

In his first rehab game, Jake Marisnick got the start in CF and went 0-4 with 3 strikeouts out of the #2 spot. However, with George Springer's predicament, Marisnick could be summoned back to Houston sooner rather than later, assuming that he did not experience any complications while in the field.

Alex Presley opened up the scoring with an RBI double in the 1st. Later in the inning, L.J. Hoes and Robbie Grossman added a single and a sac fly, respectively. The other 2 runs came courtesy of a 2-run homer from Matt Duffy in the 8th, his 9th blast of the season. Tony Kemp went 2-4 with a double and a run scored. Presley and Duffy scored 2 runs apiece.

Mark Appel will look to shake off his rough introduction to the Pacific Coast League as he starts game 3 of this series. He'll face Robbie Erlin at 7:05 Mountain.

Corpus Christi was off

The Hooks are back in action as they kick off a 3-game series in Tulsa tonight at 7:05. In game 1, Brian Holmes will face former Aggie Ross Stripling.

Inland Empire 8, Lancaster 7

W- Brian Loconsole (4-1)
L- Tyler Brunnemann (3-1)
S- Geoff Broussard (5)

Lancaster home runs: A.J. Reed (20, solo in 2nd)

Again, the JetHawks erased a big deficit. Unfortunately, the 66ers got 2 runs in the 9th again to take another game in what is turning out to be an irritating series for the 'Hawks.

A.J. Reed continues his assault on California League pitching as he launched his 20th home run of the year, a solo shot in the 2nd inning. Brian Holberton went 2-3 with an RBI single in the 4th. The JetHawks made it a 1-run game with 3 in the 7th, as Marc Wik hit a sac fly, James Ramsay added an RBI single, and Jack Mayfield ripped an RBI double. They took the lead with a pair in the 8th; the 2 runs came on a Jose Fernandez RBI groundout and an RBI single from Wik. Ramsay also had himself a 2-hit night from the top of the lineup.

Kevin Comer went 2.1 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 4, and struck out 1. Keegan Yuhl allowed 1 of the 2 runners he inherited from Comer to score, but otherwise, his efforts kept the JetHawks in the game as he allowed 2 hits over 3.2 scoreless innings and struck out 3. In his Lancaster debut, Aaron Greenwood allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 4 hits and struck out 1 in 2.1 innings. Tyler Brunnemann couldn't hold the lead; he got the final 2 outs of the inning, but not before Eric Aguilera decided to spoil the JetHawks' comeback bid by hitting a 2-run homer to put Inland Empire back in the lead. 1 of the 2 runs was charged to Brunnemann; the other run went to Greenwood. Brunnemann walked 1.

In game 3, Dan Mengden and his 'stache will be on the mound. He'll take on Jordan Kipper at 6:30 Pacific.

Beloit 9, Quad Cities 4

W- Junior Mendez (2-6)
L- Justin Ferrell (1-1)

QC home runs: Jason Martin (5, 2-run in 6th)

The Banditos got buried by a 6-run 3rd inning from the Snappers.

They got 13 hits, but it looks like they couldn't string them together to create some runs. Trent Woodward went 4-4 from the bottom of the lineup. Sean McMullen went 2-4 with an RBI double in the 2nd inning. Jason Martin, who is enjoying a breakout 2015, whacked a 2-run homer in the 6th and added an RBI groundout in the 9th. Ramon Laureano (2 2B), Alex Bregman, and Nick Tanielu all finished 2-4 as well; this was Laureano's 5th 2-hit game in a row.

Justin Ferrell went 4.2 innings and allowed 8 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits (2-run homer, grand slam), walked 2, and struck out 3. Josh James went 4.1 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4.

Tonight, the River Bandits will begin a 4-game series with Peoria. The first leg of this series is at Modern Woodmen Park. Brock Dykxhoorn will take on Matt Pearce at 7:00.

Tri-City 8, Vermont 2

W- Dean Deetz (1-1)
L- Jonathan Massad (1-1)

TC home runs: Drew Ferguson 2 (2; solo in 3rd, solo in 6th), Dex McCall (1, solo in 6th)

The Lake Monsters scored the first 2 runs of the game, but the ValleyCats had the final say in this one as they finished on an 8-0 run.

Drew Ferguson led off the 3rd with his 1st home run as a pro. Tri-City took control with 3 in the 5th and 3 in the 6th. Let's start off with the 5th first. Keach Ballard hit a sac fly and an error on the play allowed him to reach safely. Ferguson scored, and Ballard advanced to 2nd on a balk. Ballard wound up scoring on a sac fly from Brooks Marlow. Dex McCall led off the 6th with his 1st homer of the year, and later in the inning, Ferguson smacked his 2nd solo homer of the evening. And finally, Johnny Sewald ripped an RBI double. The final run of the evening came in the form of Sewald scoring on a sac fly from Anthony Hermelyn in the 8th. Ferguson finished 3-4 and very nearly had a 3-homer night. He banged a double off the wall. Sewald finished 2-4.

Agapito Barrios allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 3.2 innings. Juan Carlos Santos got the final out of the 4th without incident. Dean Deetz pitched 3.1 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 2, and striking out 3. Yeyfry Del Rosario walked 1 and struck out 1 as he threw the final 1.2 innings.

In game 2 of this series, Austin Nicely will take on Heath Bowers. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

Princeton 7, Greeneville 5

W- Blake Bivens (1-0)
L- Albert Abreu (0-1)
S- Noel Rodriguez (1)

Greeneville home runs: Connor Goedert (2, 2-run in 6th)

The Appy Astros dropped the series as they couldn't withstand a 5-run 4th from the Rays.

Myles Straw opened up the scoring with a sac fly in the 3rd, and an error on the play allowed Osvaldo Duarte to score another run. Connor Goedert continued his rampage with a 2-run homer in the 6th, and Duarte, who finished 2-5, added an RBI single in the 7th. Aaron Mizell went 2-4 with a double and a run scored.

Albert Abreu went 3.2 innings and allowed 5 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits (solo homer), walked 3, and struck out 2. Salvador Montaño was the first man out; he allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits, walked, 3, and struck out 1 in 2.1 innings. Alejandro Solarte allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out the side in the 7th, and Samil De Los Santos worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th, striking out 2.

The Appy Astros are back home to begin a 3-game set with Elizabethton. Erasmo Pinales will start the opener; first pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.
